Disinformation Strategies and Tactics: distracting hearsay amidst fleeting visions of truth - what it looks like and what can be done.

My notes yesterday's Internet Freedom Festival community knowledge share: schmud.de/posts/2020-05-29-dis (cc: @info_activism)

Recurring offer reminder: I'll help / mentor / teach / tutor / troubleshoot with anyone who wants to learn git for basic version control, collaboration, managing personal projects, or for a day job. I'll work to connect people with mentors other than me if they prefer - no need to explain why.

Same for bash, command line tools, and so on.

I want using & contributing to FS/OSS to be easier for way more people.

Boosts appreciated!!

So once again government incompetence has cut off funding for my dream gig (it was a nice... few months, anyway) and I'm adrift in the covid economy.

If you have a line on work involving: Audio Mixing, Audio Programming, Multimedia manipulation or programming in general, or a general Python / Rust gig, I would really, really appreciate it.

In the meantime, I have albums available for sale here:


I also take music commissions.

Lisp, RMS 

robertstrandh: When RMS announced GNU Emacs, I wrote to him saying something like "It would be better to first write a Lisp system that compiles to native code and then write Emacs in it" (since I already knew about Multics Emacs).
